Tonsillitis can affect the vocal chords as a result your voice may become husky or may go for a short period of time.
You can take antibiotics, antiinflamatory and hot saline gargles.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Acute tonsillitis can cause excessive swelling of vocal cords which causes loss of voice. Taking antibiotics and warm saline gargles will reduce the inflammation and swelling and will help in regaining the lost voice.
